On June 25, 2017, Time Magazine published a video on its Facebook social media account that listed seven amazing trips that travelers should enjoy in their 30s, including Belize.
The Time Magazine video extolled the highlights of Belize for individuals in their 30s, describing it as the perfect honeymoon or beach destination because it is far (from the United States) but not "too far." Indeed, all four of the biggest airlines in the United States now offer non-stop service to Belize from major cities across the country, with flights taking just 2-5 hours to arrive in the country.
For honeymooners of all ages, Belize is well-known as a place for exotic destination weddings because of its luxury resorts, hundreds of picturesque islands, sugar sand white beaches, and lush natural jungle settings.
The Time Magazine video also described Belize as a great beach destination and a world-class spot for scuba diving and snorkeling. Many newlyweds enjoy experiencing these and similar activities on the islands, including sea kayaking, windsurfing, fishing, sailing, and sampling fresh-caught seafood with a lovely beach barbecue.
In addition to the above, the Time Magazine video added that the rainforest is a great place to enjoy live music and nighttime entertainment. This is in clear reference to the lively cultural scene found in places like Dangriga, the town where the indigenous "punta rock" musical genre was first developed.
Other attractions for honeymooners not mentioned in the Time Magazine video include exciting adventure excursions on the mainland such as horseback riding, canoeing down pristine jungle rivers, zip lining through the canopy, rappelling down waterfalls, and the unique Belizean activity known as "cave tubing" where participants float down underground rivers on an inner tube.
Other prime attractions for newlyweds include exploring ancient Maya sites like Xunantunich and Caracol. Belize was once the heartland of the ancient Maya civilization that stretched from Mexico in the north down to El Salvador in the south. Today, Belize is home to more Maya sites than anywhere on the planet, including the famous Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM) Cave where visitors can see the undisturbed skeletons of men, women, and children that were sacrificed to the gods.
